Letter: Sinner right man to represent North Dakota
I know many of you disdain politics. I don’t. I grew up in a family that felt public service was a noble and necessary duty, whether it was a person that dedicated time to serve on a school board, county commission, city council, rural fire department, state or national office. A...

Letter: Roads less traveled in ND oil country can offer relief
I don't know if you watched "Mad Money." They did a show on oil play in North Dakota. I'm sure the result will be more workers hitching a ride into Dickinson, Williston, Watford City and so forth. They will come from unemployment lines across the nation, bringing wives, children...
